Most orders can be cancelled any time before it goes into production. Once you have approved the proof for your order and production is underway, cancellations cannot be accepted.

If cancelleling a special order or custom order, a cancellation fee will apply, and will vary based on the scope of the project. Contact your branding specialist for any cancellation requests.
Overruns and Underruns Policy:
Due to manufacturing standards and production quality, there will occasionally be overruns or underruns on an order. The industry standard for most is +/- 5%. What this means is that a manufacturer my add 5% additional product to the print run in anticipation of rejecting the printing quality of some printed items. Those rejected items will be removed from your order before shipment. As a result, there may be up to 5% additional product shipped, or up to 5% product under-shipped. We do our very best to reduce the possibility of this occurrence. Historically, 99% of orders with Brand Spirit are shipped in the exact quantities ordered.
We normally ship orders within the USA via UPS or FedEx. LTL trucking carriers are used as needed for large (palleted) shipments. We are happy to ship your order using your UPS or FedEx account if requested. Final shipping charges will be determined upon order shipment and will be added to your final invoice. Estimated shipping costs may be obtained in advance upon request.
The shipping method for your order is determined based on a combination of your in-hands date requirement as well as the item production time. Our standard shipping method is ground service. You will be notified in advance If rush shipping is required to meet your deadline. We will first obtain your approval before using any non-ground (air) shipping methods.
International shipping options are available to many countries outside of the USA. Our primary shipping methd to Canada is FedEx ground or UPS ground. When shipping outside of the USA and Canada, FedEx International Economy Air or FedEx International Priorty Air are the preferred shipping methods.
